As usual, the summer has flown by. While we can always find fault with the weather – it should have been this or wish it were that – I can’t do anything but praise all of the people who made this a successful summer for MVCA. Be sure to take a moment to relive some of the memories by enjoying the pictures on our Events Page. It truly was an eventful few months.
I also want to tee up more changes and events for the upcoming autumn season. This year we will finally launch our class offerings at Dolgeville Central School. Starting with a drawing class, we encourage students and adults of all ages to enroll. MVCA has limited scholarships available for this class; call the Center for more information. I would love to see a multigenerational class. Rosann Scalise is teaching our Tai Chi classes each week at the Dolgeville Library. Consider taking some time out for yourselves to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit. Read about the health benefits of Tai Chi.
Mark your calendars for September’s 3rd Thursday in Little Falls. Join us for the Pizza Challenge and MVCA Block Party. Your entire family will enjoy voting for their favorite pizza while you “Dance Your Pizza Off” on Main Street. This MVCA fundraiser will have celebrity dancers and kids’ dance challenges. Maria Salamone will emcee the event and keep the party hopping. You are encouraged to bring your favorite vinyl record and request a few tracks. Steve Wood will be our DJ.
Agne Radzeviciute returns to share her amazing musical talents prior to embarking on her European tour. Don’t miss the return of the Syracuse University Brass Ensemble. Kids, check out the Upcycled Robot Challenge inside. Watch Facebook for more details.
Of course, as always, our wonderful instructors return to offer the best quality instruction in our Fine Arts classes. Come see our “classroom” space now located in the Community Room of the 1st Presbyterian Church on Jackson Street.
There’s much more in store for the Fall. Keep reading to discover everything to do with Art Matters!
